MOREHEAD CITY (WCTI) — A man from South Carolina was bitten Thursday afternoon while he was swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.

Donnie White, 54, was fishing about 13 miles from Beaufort Inlet with his family when he decided to cool off with a swim. It wasn’t long after he jumped into the water that his family members, still on the boat, say they tried warning him of an approaching bull shark. Family members said White thought they were kidding. That’s when the shark bit him on the leg.

The boat rushed back to shore while family members wrapped White’s leg in T-shirts and elevated it to stop the bleeding. The boat docked at Morehead City around 3 p.m. Thursday, and White was taken to Carteret General Hospital.

The hospital is not releasing White’s current condition.
